Winter Soldier: US Vets, Active-Duty Soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan Testify About the Horrors of War
US veterans gathered in Maryland this past weekend to testify at Winter Soldier, an eyewitness indictment of atrocities committed by US troops during the ongoing occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Soldiers spoke of free-fire zones, the shootings and beatings of innocent civilians, racism at the highest levels of the military, sexual harassment and assault within the military, and the torturing of prisoners. While the corporate media ignored the story, we broadcast their voices.

Excellent journalism as usual
Amy Goodman has lived up to the tradition of excellent journalism in this segment of her program. My Lai, if forgotten, will tend to be repeated in different parts of the world. The cover-up that follows was a disgrace to American history that would never be erased.

great show, news overlooked once again by US media
props to the vets and esp. Jon Michael Turner for an intelligent and moving display and insight into some of what has been going on in Iraq.
from my audio version review:
this program is about Winter Soldier anniversary (where originally vietnam vets spoke out about the horrors witnessed in vietnam).
today's modern version of US soldiers deployed to iraq and afghanistan was moving, saddening, and extremely articulate.
